CNN has reached out to representatives for Caine for comment.
Thomas described the auction – which includes a director’s chair from the 1971 crime film “Get Carter,” in which Caine played gangster Jack Carter, and even a pair of the actor’s famous glasses – as the one of Bonhams’ most personal sales to Date.
He told CNN: “Sir Michael has collected these items for many decades and always bought what he loves rather than for any other reason, which makes this collection so incredibly special.”

From his art collection, Caine is selling “Les Amoureux Dans L’Arbre” by Marc Chagall, which is expected to sell for up to £ 50,000 ($ 68,000).
“It’s going to be pretty hard to part with so many precious parts of my life and career, but now is the right time to move on,” Caine said in a press release, adding: “I hope these memories give their new owners as much pleasure as they gave us. ”
